RIVEA RESTAURANT BY ALAIN DUCASSE
Saint-Tropez is one of the most time-honored, exclusive destinations in the world. An international high-society haven since it opened in 1967, Hotel Byblos is nestled between the Citadel and Place des Lices, just steps from the city center. The Byblos is made up of a group of gold and terracotta color houses, a stone’s throw from designer shops, the bustling port and the beach. Reminiscent of a Provençal coastal town, it boasts its own illustrious in-house concept restaurant, Rivea by Alain Ducasse.
Rivea by Alain Ducasse offers a festive Riviera-style gastronomic experience, an authentic kitchen where traditional French and Italian ingredients and flavors can be enjoyed on one of the most charming terraces at the Byblos in Saint-Tropez.
The setting is pure Italian design and soft lighting – a warm, welcoming concept suited to the idea of a cross-over kitchen, open to the culinary cultures of the Riviera. Through the seamless visual interplay between indoors and out, connected by the open kitchen, the structure of the restaurant designed by the Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architectural studio, returns the restaurant’s decor to the heart of a sun-drenched, nautical Provençe. Chosen to furnish this remarkable space are the Feel Good bar stools designed by architect Antonio Citterio and upholstered in tobacco color leather.
